Regional Dance America/Southeastern Regional Ballet Association Festival Gala Performance
Raleigh Dance Theatre, under the artistic direction of Mary LeGere, announces the Gala performance of the Regional Dance America/Southeastern Regional Ballet Association Festival. This public performance will feature pre-professional dancers of the highest level in pieces selected through adjudication by Leslie Crockett, formerly of San Francisco Ballet. Held in the historic Carolina Theatre, the gala will be at 7:30pm on April 30, 2016. Tickets may be purchased through the Carolina Theatre box office for $35. This performance in Fletcher Hall is made possible in part by a grant from the Durham Arts Council’s Fletcher Performing Arts Fund of the Triangle Community Foundation.
The Gala is the culmination of the 60th annual RDA/SERBA Festival in which internationally recognized faculty will teach more than 450 dancers who represent 20 regional dance companies from the Southeast. The Southeastern Regional Ballet Association (SERBA) celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. The umbrella organization, Regional Dance America (RDA) was founded in 1988 with a mission to promote the artistic development of dance companies throughout the United States.
Every year in each of the regions, member companies gather for a festival to share three days of classes, lectures and seminars. Dancers work with master teachers of national and international acclaim. Evening performances are held to showcase the member companies and to demonstrate the growth they have achieved throughout the year. Raleigh Dance Theatre hosted the festival in 2000 and 2005.
